Michael Estrada teaches at a Bay Area community college. He is, also, the son of a mother with an untreated serious mental illness. For the last two years of her life, while they lived together in Modesto, CA., he was her caregiver. His documentary film, Benevolent Neglect, honors his mom’s memory and chronicles his family’s struggle to try and get the help they desperately needed for her.
“It is a painful reminder that we are not doing enough to avoid what Estrada notes is “much sorrow, needless suffering and preventable deaths.”- Pete Early
